“Get ready to be amazed and surprised by a very different kind of orchestral experience this weekend at Old Forester’s Paristown Hall” in Louisville, Kentucky, writes Kirby Adams in Thursday’s (10/31) Louisville Courier Journal (subscription required). “On Saturday, you’re invited to spread out a picnic blanket or set up a folding chair outside the entertainment venue and take in the first free outdoor simulcast of the Louisville Orchestra on an enormous screen attached to the north-facing wall of the new venue run by the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts…. ‘We will perform inside Paristown Hall, and several cameras … will simulcast the performance to the audience outside the building,’ said Music Director Teddy Abrams…. Paristown Hall is part of a larger development that intends to turn the Paristown Pointe area into an art and culture district…. The orchestra will perform … traditional and contemporary American composers and the opening and closing sections of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. The free event Saturday [will include] preshow festivities in the garden … special local musical guests, a live post-show DJ and more.” The Louisville Orchestra will perform four additional 2019-20 concerts at the venue, which also has indoor seating.
